Commentary on Frank Jackson's from metaphysics to ethics [Book Review]
Philosophy and Phenomenological Research 62 (3):645–652 (2001)
Symposium contribution on Frank Jackson’s a priori entailment thesis – which he employs to connect metaphysics and conceptual analysis. In the book he develops this thesis within the two-dimensional framework and also proposes a formal argument for it. I argue that the two-dimensional framework doesn’t provide independent support for the a priori entailment thesis since one has to build into the framework assumptions as strong as the thesis itself.
